    He did the majority of the work. I suggested he pull starter, it might be sticking. Used flashlight to see wear on flywheel.
    Told him I would drive loader, he needed to find points to chain to. (I checked they were safe). Then keep back.

    Had similar selling a MC. I had it posted a couple of places and in the process sold a top case off of it. Then sold the bike to a guy and delivered it as he was primary care for his invalid wife. Through the process I saw that he was a good guy in a bad situation. A couple weeks later he pings me asking about the top case. Yep, I had forgot to modify my listing. So, I asked him if $200 would be fair. He says yes and I sent him a check. Stuff happens, what matters is how you react.

    You were being 100% honest. Old iron / stuff happens, clear conscience.
    If it was a problem for him he would have counter offered or walked before you loaded it for him.
